Sword Mage (5e Class)

Changed Saving throw proficiency - Strength to Constitution. Added missing description for Ability Score Improvement. I see it in the chart. I know its not necessary, but its nice to have. I would revise the choice in proficient Saving Throws.


Swordmage, Variant (3.5e Class)

Please log in to add or reply to comments. If you use spellstrike with a spell that allows repeat saving throws like levitate, will each subsequent saving throw after the first have disadvantage? That said, if you were to, say, multiclass into Fighter and get action surge, you COULD make a Spellstrike, then action surge to make an extra attack action if you wanted. Oversight or intended? My recommendation when I think someone else brought this up was; just let the player have the shield proficiency a level early so their build works. I just want to say I love the newer update to the swordmage.
